The 40th anniversary of the Beach to Bay Relay Marathon, the largest relay marathon in the U.S., is rapidly approaching - celebrating our nation's military, as always, on Armed Forces Day (May 16).
Aptly described as a "weekend beach party that is interrupted by a relay marathon," the race will welcome some 15,000 runners to this beachfront town on the Texas coast.
"Many teams come to Corpus Christi for the Beach to Bay Relay to have a wonderful 'adult' spring break," said race director Doug McBee of the event that has featured as many as 2,550 six-person relay squads in recent years.
The deadline to register for the race, which includes the famous Beach to Bay Relay T-shirt and six medals for all finishing teams, is May 1. Grab five of your running buddies and sign up for the funnest race of the year today at www.beachtobayrelay.com.
